Exchange Organization Voting Membership


U.S.-based exchange organizations conducting international youth exchange programs for secondary-school students are eligible for exchange organization voting membership. Dues depend on the number of secondary-school-aged participants sponsored by the organization. To be eligible, interested exchange programs must demonstrate at least a one-year track record of conducting international youth exchange programs.
